Dr. B is a caring physician. Out of the fellows in his group, in my opinion he goes above and beyond to help his patients. Some of the other doctors at this office will refuse to take patients who do not have health insurance or even on Medicaid. Dr. B truly wants to help, and if you need surgery but don't have insurance he will tell you to go on a specific day when he's on call to help repair the issues. I think to be a good physician you gotta have the willingness and the heart to help.
